Tickets are now on sale for the Manchester World Cup that runs from February 23 to 25, and there?s an early bird offer for spectators who book early. The event is the final round of the track world cup series and is the last opportunity for nations to qualify spots for the world championships in Majorca from March 29 to April 1.

The British team will be out in force on their home track while track trade teams are likely to be there too, including Recycling.co.uk and the new 100% ME team.

Event finals will be spread over the three days with six on the Friday, six on the Saturday and five on the Sunday. Once again the Japanese keirin will be the richest race on the track, and will bring the world cup to a close with £47,000 being given away in prizes.

Tickets range from £6 for children to £40 for a three day premium adult ticket and are available from www.ticketmaster.co.uk and www.worldtrackcycling.com, or by ringing 0871 230 2621.
